On June 16, 2006, Professor Lawrence Lessig
gave a talk at the Center for American Progress
entitled "The Withering of the Net: How DC Pathologies are Undermining the Growth and Wealth of the Net." This talk was the second in a series of three. The first talk was Professor Yochai Benkler
, the third featured Dave Farber and Vint Cerf.
In just under 40 minutes, Lessig delivered a stunning performance, documenting his assertion that the Internet was created by Republicans and discussing the Read Only (RO) and Read Write (RW) Internet(s). In those less than 40 minutes, Lessig hit the mark precisely on 457 slides. In the spirit of the RW Internet, we taped his performance and then mashed that up with his presentation materials.
The transcript for this talk is here.
If you would like to try your own remix, there is also a 39 Mbyte tarball
with 590 TIFF images from each state transition in the presentation.
